Funny Medical Terms
There are plenty of outstanding medical doctors but there are also a few jerky ones who use medical terminology to show off. Sure, scientists use Latin to reduce confusion between different languages but there is little need for this in a doctor’s office. To most of us, a brilliant medical doctor who uses the funny term “eructation” instead of “burp” sounds like they are egotistically reliving their spelling-bee glory-days.
So what is the purpose of all these funny medical terms anyway? Perhaps they help us (as the patients) believe that we are getting our money’s worth during our 3 minutes/$213 doctor’s exam. Yeah, “tumescent” chance!
